The water heater is one of the most important items in your home. Unfortunately, most homeowners don’t realize the importance of keeping their system clean.
The easiest way to extend the life of your water heater is with routine maintenance. Yearly maintenance on your water heater ensures safe and proper performance to avoid future problems or water heater replacement.
According to most water heater manufacturers, maintenance of your water heater is required to keep your manufacturer’s warranty valid. Therefore, it is highly recommended that water heater tanks are drained and flushed free of sediment every 12 months to bring your water heater back to the original manufacturer’s specifications.
Keeping your water heater clean can help the system work better, increasing the efficiency and longevity of your system. This all leads to lower utility bills.
Avoid a water heater replacement and keep your water heater in top working condition. Water heater maintenance can be the difference between a six-year lifespan and a ten-year lifespan.
A service technician attaches a hose to your water heater tank, empties it into a drain, and then fills the tank back up with water. In most cases they will clean and inspect rods, ventilation and other important parts.
